of this happened as kathleen sebelius was hammered against during a congressional hearing where republicans accused the white house of dishonesty. if you like your plan, you can keep it. some of that frustration was bipartisan, as max back us also chimed in that the administration has not been playing it straight. >> when we asked for updates on the marketplace, the responses we got were totally unsatisfactory. at multiple times we heard that everything was on track. we now know that was not the case. >> this is a dishonesty. you've been misleading the american people and the president has. i would much rather you say yeah, we were wrong, yeah, we didn't tell the truth. >> reporter: another embarrassing refusal indication that when sell beal yesterday acknowledged that hhs is not doing background checks on. here's how that exchanged played out. >> so a convicted felon could be a navigator and could acquire sensitive personality information from an individual unbeknownst to them? >> that is possible. >> reporter: now secretary sebelius predicted that due to all the problems, the administration's rol
to ask kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, about the navigators this morning, and she admitted that there is no background check done of the navigators, even though they will collect some of the most sensitive personal information that you can have, including things like your social security that can be then used to hack into your accounts. your health information, whether it is mental or physical, which is among the most sensitive personal information each of us have. well, she admitted since they don't do any background check, she couldn't guarantee that a convicted felon couldn't be a navigator. she said that was possible. i think something that really grabbed a lot of people's attention because they just naturally assumed that this sort of thing had been taken care of. and that three tphafs years leading -- three and a half years leading to the rollout of obamacare. we know the more people who find out about this law, i liken it to an onion. with each layer of the onion you peel back, it keeps getting worse and worse and worse. the law is proving to be eve

. host: kathleen sebelius. caller: yeah. it embarrasses me. i want to kind of change parties, but my grandfather, father, everybody in my family is a republican. they always have been. i'm kind of ashamed of them. the only republican i like now is john boehner, and i used to like paul ryan, but every time i see paul ryan, like the clip you had earlier i watched, paul ryan reminds me of john boehner. they are kind of the same. i used to think they were both the smartest republicans. i liked them the most. but they just don't understand with the latino votes, it will never be high for them ever, and i don't think they have a high african-american vote, they do white peoplene blow, they have the crazy white people blow. i can see where the -- people vote. i can see where they're going down. they have always needed to go moderate. if they have gotten moderate from the beginning and not gotten in talks with the tea party -- host: you might be interested in a piece on the cover of politico's new magazine, the cover story is locked in the cabinet -- the worst job in barack obama's washingto
including kathleen sebelius, the health and human services secretary was aware of some of the problems with the website earlier this year, back in march. those concerns, according to republican members of this one committee, the energy and commerce committee, they feel like they were not told the full story by kathleen sebelius based on the documents provided by a consultant, a firm that was advising the administration on the health care plan. guys, back to you. >> jim, appreciate the reporting. we want to tell you about a deadly plane crash in russia. it was caught on video which is helping to understand what happens but it's hard to watch. that spec of light is a boeing 737 passenger jet. sunday all 50 people aboard it died in the crash you just saw in kazan. american flight investigators say the recovery of the black boxes will help in the investigation. we're bringing in our specialist, richard quest, the host of "quest means business." knows a lot about the aviation business, how these investigations happen. how do we make sense of this? >> this is a difficult one not only because
for obamacare still being built. >> yeah. >> apparently it's not complete. >> for some reason, kathleen sebelius and the president of the united states made their second deadline by november 30th. the second they said that, i thought, wait. the guy you brought in to fix it says it's worse than we thought! why would you pick out an arbitrary date right after thanksgiving and say, that's when it will be fixed? now nobody thinks that date is going to mean anything. >> it would be optimal. >> right. >> i remember them saying optimal function by the end of november. >> and keep in mind, you got to be signed up by the end of the year. so they figured, we should give people at least a one month opportunity. but now kathleen sebelius says the end of this month, not a deadline. quote, the 30th of november is not a magic go, no-go date. it is a work of constant improvement. what's interesting is she was down in florida yesterday. she was speaking at florida tech college in orlando and it's kind of sad because there she was talking about how it's working. we've had a few problems. she's walking amongst som
this hour, hate it when that happens, kathleen sebelius caught on camera as the obama care website crashes right in front of her. while the optics are bad, the numbers may be good. are more people finally signing up. >> also new, the apology debate. was the u.s. asked to apologize to the afghan people in order to finalize a new security agreement with the country? we get the answers from the administration. >>> charges dropped. the two teen girls accused of bullying a girl to death will not face charges. the sheriff who arrested them is now under fire. he joins us live. >>> your "new day" starts right now. >> announcer: what you need to know -- >> unlike lehman brothers, the relationship is too big to fail. >> announcer: what you just have to see. this is "new day" with chris cuomo, kate bolduan and michaela pereira. >> welcome to "new day." it's thursday, november 21st, 7:00 in the east. here's what happened while you were sleeping. a massive boeing cargo jet somehow landed at the wrong airport in wichita, kansas. now it's stuck. why? the runway there simply too short for the dream lifter
a faster and youers will face fewer errors. kathleen is h sebelius has some, to shop the website during off peak times and don't be afraid to comparison shop to get the best deal. we will gather to the health policy reporter for the wall street journey, she's in washington tonight. they said it won't be perfect, do you think it will be largely problem free. >> what we're hearing some of the front-end problems have been fixed so the site looks better, the pages load faster, some of the back end problems the administration has acknowledged there are still problems. they're still tripping up the identity page. these are problems that could be exacerbated by a volume of people come together site. >> will most people be able to log onto the website and buy insurance? >> the best way to think about these problems is that they're hidden to a large number of people. but they're very real problems and hard to fix. the vast majority of people may see a better using experience on this site. what remains to be seen is whether a good number of people are still getting tripped up by the back end problem.
